Birthday Post: Reflecting on My Time as a Blogger so Far
I’ll be honest, when I started this blog I didn’t really know what I was doing. Shocking, I know, but It wasn’t really something I was expecting to have fun with. I originally started this blog as a way to vent and to express myself creatively. Anime is something I enjoyed, so I wrote about it.
Now, roughly 6 months later, and as of today legally an adult in these here United States of America, I’ve been loving my time as a blogger. Making posts is something I find fun, and that’s why I do it. If that wasn’t the case, then you probably wouldn’t be seeing this post at all.
Not only have I had a great time with my own blog, It’s been a blast discovering and reading other bloggers as well.
Karandi has been a fun person to talk to ever since I started writing about anime, and I’ll also take the time to apologize for referring to her as a dude for a second time. Sorry, Karandi!
Scott from Mechanical Anime Reviews has been a joy to read as well. I remember the first post I read from him was a wonderful review of Your Lie in April.
Irina‘s blog I drink and watch anime has been a blast ever since I discovered her through her post helping smaller bloggers. Her posts are quite insightful if I do say so myself.
Shokamoka‘s Blog of Wonder has been a treat to read as well. Always stirring things up and keeping it interesting.
If by some chance you’ve stumbled across my blog, but not any of theirs I suggest you expose yourself to some, or all, of their wonderful content.
This year hasn’t exactly been one of my best. More and more I’ve been feeling sluggish and unable to motivate myself into being productive, and my grades have been suffering a bit because of it. This blog has given me an outlet to express myself and given me something to invest time and energy into that feels productive.
Thank you to everyone who has taken an interest in reading what I have to say. I appreciate knowing that this isn’t just an echo chamber for my thoughts and that my content is being challenged as well. Here’s to another 6 months, and hopefully a bit longer than that.
Happy Birthday to me! Thanks for reading, Friendos!
